Israel Election Heads for Deadlock Between Netanyahu and Gantz

Israel Election Heads for Deadlock Between Netanyahu and Gantz With 60% of the votes counted, it still remains unclear who will be the next prime minister of Israel.

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, is seeking his fifth term.

To win, Netanyahu's Likud party needs to command 61 seats in the Knesset (parliament).

As of Tuesday, the incumbent holds 31 as his opponent, Benny Gantz, holds 32.

The outcome may depend on each candidate's stance on annexing Jewish settlements and territories in the West Bank, which Netanyahu plans to do.

Gantz's Blue and White party has not issued an official stance on annexation but has stated he will not divide Jerusalem.

Neither party can take the lead without support from Yisrael Beiteinu, whose leader wants a government of both Likud and Blue and White.
